WELCOME to Challenge #63
Let the Troubles Begin 

"Dog Days of Summer" 
This Challenge runs from Aug 3 - Aug 16


Thing 1:  Double Trouble 
says, "We're midway into the Dog Days of Summer, also known as the hot, humid, unbearable summer days 'not fit for a dog' or 'while dogs are panting from the heat'."

So... If you want to Beat the Heat use Dry Embossing; or if you want to Beat the Cold use Heat Embossing; or use both... it's your choice.  



You can stop here...
OR, you can choose to use Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below.  



Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Doggone it! I've learned never to stand between a dog and a fire hydrant. It's like coming between a cardmaker and her supplies! With that said wouldn't it be cute to include a dog or a favorite critter on your project?"

Don't stop here but check out Double Dare's challenge below. 
















Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, " If you have included any critter you can enter your project here at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #41

The Crafty Crazies say, "All you need is a critter."  Critter is defined as anything with four legs, or fins, or wings, whether mammal, reptile, bird, fish, or insect. It can be mythical, fictional, imaginary, etc., as long as it's not human.

WELCOME to Challenge #60 - Let the Troubles Begin 

"Something, Anything, Everything" 



THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "It's time again to grab your bone folder and other stuff, and create something new. We think this is easier than folding a fitted sheet! It's time to use the 'stuff' you have in your stash (new and/or old)."

You can stop here...

OR, you can choose to include Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below to earn additional chances at our random draw.








THING 3:  Twisted Sister
says, "In the USA we are celebrating our Independence Day on July 4th. This does not have to be patriotic but we would like to see a combination of red, white and blue in your project."

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project.  













THING 2:  Double Dare 
says, "I dare you to multiply the fun by linking your project with any previous partner(s) listed below. You will qualify for extra chances in our Random Draw. 

Make sure you read their guidelines carefully and observe their dates. We don't want you to get into trouble with them."

This means each time you link to a previous partner with the same card, you gain an additional chance. Please identify each of them in your blog with our Double Trouble link.  




Check out Color Dare Challenge #401 with Inspiration Board which include Red, White and Blue - No Backlinking but if you have created a card from July 3-5, you can enter your card at Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge 401 HERE providing you have only the colors in their Inspiration Board
